Happy New Year for 2021 from all at the surgeries
COVID-19 Pfizer BioNTech Vaccinations
As part of Coventry North Primary Care Network we are pleased to be the first group of GP surgeries in Coventry to offer this Covid-19 vaccine. We can only offer the vaccine in line with the identified risk groups, which currently mean our over 80 year old population. This particular vaccine cannot be offered to some of these patients because of allergies and our housebound patients will be contacted once a vaccine is authorised that can be delivered in the home environment.
As more vaccine becomes available we will be contacting our patients to offer the vaccine. Guidance is available on the Government website about the intended priority groups to be vaccinated
*** Please do NOT contact the surgery - we will contact you directly***
Thank you to all of the staff helping to deliver this vaccination programme, both in clinics and in preparing the tremendous amount of administration work associated with this.
Are you a Carer?
If you help to look after a relative or friend, provide help with day to day living or more intensive care, you are a carer. The role that you provide is invaluable to the person you care for and wider society.
But you may find it difficult to take proper care of your own health and well being........ there is lots of support and guidance available to you. The Carers Trust is an organisation that can help you with practical solutions, such as ensuring that you are aware of any financial assistance that may be available or arranging some respite to enable you to have a short break from your caring respoinsibilities. Carers are any age and from any background..... take a look at the Carers Trust website or give them a call on 024 76 632972
The local council also has advice and guidance which you may wish to access including ways in which you can plan for any changes that might affect you or the person you care for if you develop symptoms of Covid 19
And remember, you can access a health check and free flu vaccination from your GP surgery as a carer. If you have not let us know that you are a carer, send us a short message or call us so we can update our records and ensure we send you the invitations that you are entitled to.
Thank you for caring.
Social Prescribing ....... there is someone who can help.
Social prescribers work alongside us in Practice with the things that can't be fixed with medicine alone. We all know that issues and worries in our life can affect how we feel and how we cope with things.... stress, anxiety, money worries, housing problems, loneliness or isolation.
Call the surgery with your name and a contact number and our social prescriber will call you
Flu vaccinations 2020
See our Vaccinations Page for more information.
The importance of flu vaccinations has never been so widely reported as during this current year. Your surgery has purchased flu vaccines for our eligible patients and is currently sending out invitations to our eligible patients. The latest up to date information on eligible groups is published here . The information is available in many languages on the website.
The surgery will be working hard to deliver as many of the vaccinations as soon as they are received in the surgery. If you have not received an invitation form us, please contact the surgery to check if you can receive the vaccination and book your slot!
Patients aged 50 - 64 years........if you are within this age group and do NOT have a qualifying condition
When you attend for your flu vaccination, please remember:
- To keep to your appointment time - we will try not to keep you waiting
- Wear a face covering.
- Do NOT attend the surgery if you have symptoms of Covid-19 - we will rearrange your appointment
- Follow the guidance of the staff on site to keep to the one way system
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon
